Dysport 500 IU - Ipsen
Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient: Abobotulinumtoxina
Pack: 1 Vial x 500 IU
Dysport contains substance called botulinum toxin type A that relaxes the muscle. Botulinum toxin is derived from Clostridium botulinum bacteria that intercept the discharge of acetylcholine from the nerve endings that causes the contraction of muscles. For the improvement of the appearance of glabellar lines, Dysport temporarily impede the tightening of muscles found between the eyebrows for about 4 months. For the treatment of abnormal head position and neck pain caused by cervical dystonia (CD), Dysport lessens the muscle spasm that causes the CD by softening the muscle for about 12 to 16 weeks. Neck pain and abnormal head position as symptoms to CD is thereby reduced. Dysport works in two functions, which is by inhibiting the release of acetylcholine and at the same time blocks the neuromuscular activity.
